Introduction

“Just Stories and Poems” are Inspirational verse and stories which I have been writing down since 1992. They speak about Who, What and Why we are and so help us to have a clearer understanding of ourselves and others.

Some talk about Nature, while others contain philosophy concerning our life and ‘death’ here on this Earth. They also tell us about life in Spirit and mention spiritual teachings. Others are stories and poems for children.

Money received from my writings is used towards putting together other books, my reward being in the enlightenment and comfort these inspirational words offer to myself and to other people.

Sincerely, Valerie Lancaster

 

Quick profile of the Author

Valerie Lancaster is a housewife with three children and five grandchildren.  She has been married for fifty-one years to her husband Bern and they live in a small village just outside Southport in Lancashire.  They both enjoy hiking together out in the countryside, through woodlands, along streams and across hillsides.  In the past they have climbed all the highest peaks in England and in the Scottish Highlands, but now their walks are more low-level.  Valerie loves Nature, with all the creatures and beautiful scenery.

She started receiving inspirational poems, stories and philosophy over twenty years ago and has had eleven small “Just Poems” books printed.  However, “Two Wings” is her first published paper-back and also her first e-book.  Up until 2009 Valerie and her husband coached and ran Gymnastic Clubs for children.  They did this for fifty years on a totally voluntary basis and in 2006, they were both amazed to each receive an MBE for their services to youth.
